I've been using DPP 3 with my 1D4 for a long time now. I'm comfortable with the version and it does all that I need so didn't upgrade to DDP 4.

But buying the 80D forced me to upgrade to DPP 4. But one odd thing about DPP 4. When I open a raw image in the Edit window, the IQ looks bad.
Even after making adjustments to the image - like sharpness & contrast - the image still looks soft and with poor detail. Kind of crappy, to be honest.

But yet when I convert the image to jpeg, then view using Zoombrowser, the image looks excellent. I don't have this issue with DPP 3.

Am I over looking an adjustment or setting in DPP 4?

I haven't used DPP4...

But, you say that a jpeg (of the original image (?) comes out looking good:

What happens if when you open the Raw file, and you go to the Picture Style settings, -- in dPP3 they showed what an out-of-camera jpeg would have been rendered with. What happens if you tweak those settings in DPP4? in fact, there are individual settings for Contrast, Sharpening and Saturation. Like I said, those settings are used with an out-of-camera jpeg. When you say, a jpeg looks good viewed separately -- if you compare the Raw with a jpeg and look at those PS settings. And, for "real" comparison, take a shot and tweak your PS settings in-camera, and compare the jpeg with a Raw version...?

I can't find it either, maybe it's not in DPP4.

I tried the Picture Style settings, but get the same results.

But...I loaded some raw images from my 1D4 and 6D into DPP4...and the image shown in the Edit window is very sharp and detailed, even before
adding sharpening or making other adjustments. So I believe DPP4 is working as it should.

Maybe what I thought was a problem is just a characteristic of the 80D and it's 1.6x 24 MP sensor and DPP4.

To compare apples to apples, so to speak, you should consider evaluating image sharpness, etc. at 100% zoom on screen.
